Today, ITV have revealed the final two films which will parodied in their new five-part series The Keith and Paddy Picture Show as well as a whole host of new celebrities to add to an already impressive list of guest stars.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Kimberley Wyatt, Stephen Tompkinson, John Barrowman, Marvin Humes, Andi Peters, Larry Lamb, Jessica Hynes and Anna Friel would be joining Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness in their brand new ITV primetime series, The Keith and Paddy Picture Show to parody Rocky, Dirty Dancing and Jaws.
And it turns out that list of names was just the tip of the iceberg.
Also joining Keith and Paddy will be Michelle Keegan, Ant & Dec, Phillip Schofield, David Dickinson, Jeremy Kyle, Emma Willis, Sarah Parish, Chris Kamara, Gary Wilmot, Bob Carolgees, Will Mellor, Vicki Michelle, Emily Atack and… Robbie Williams!
Robbie will star in a parody of Ghostbusters where he’ll play Egon, and speaking about the cameo, Robbie said:
“I had such a laugh with Keith and Paddy filming Ghostbusters and I’m thrilled to be playing Egon… I ain’t afraid of no ghosts!”
Also joining Robbie in Ghostbusters will be Emma Willis as Janine, Sarah Parish as Dana and former footballer turned presenter Chris Kamara as Ray Parker Jnr.
Michelle Keegan will play Princess Leia in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi alongside Ant and Dec as Ewoks, Phillip Schofield as Yoda, David Dickinson as The Emperor and Jeremy Kyle as himself.
Speaking about playing Princess Leia, Michelle Keegan said:
“I’m excited to be part of this new show with Keith and Paddy and thrilled to be taking on the iconic role of Princess Leia, a strong, female heroine and all round Star Wars legend. I had so much fun and we had such a laugh filming that I can’t wait for everyone to see the final result.”
Described as an affectionate and humorous tribute to some of Keith and Paddy’s favourite movies of all time, The Keith and Paddy Picture Show will see the duo recreate iconic films and each half hour episode will be a mix of film parodies and behind-the-scenes mock-documentary footage.
Look out for my interview with Keith and Paddy in the upcoming weeks where I’ll be finding more about their brand new series.
The Keith and Paddy Picture Show starts in April on ITV
